Stuttgart Engineers Seek Congressional Help With Plan To Remedy Dwindling' Supply Of Sub-Surface Water In Rice Area Stultgart, Ark.-M')-A p a i r of Arkansans want Congress to pick up a $250,000 tab to-qr.cnch a big thirst. They'll make the request next Monday In Washington before a House Appropriations Sub- commitlee, It's the sections of the country where irrigation Is used in farming that n e e d a big drink of water. A couple of Stuttgart engineers Brooklyn-born Raphael Kazmann and Texas-born Tom Kricke, have plan lo remedy the dwindling supply of sub-surface water-simply pump water back into depleted underground storage strata 3f sand and gravel. They think they c a n ' d o . i t by 'recharge wells. For 20 years, the level of ground-walcr over the-nation has jeen dropping because water has een withdrawn faslc- than na- ,ure can refill the below-ground reservoirs. There is a growing need to do'something about the r o b 1 e m in Stuttgart's Grand 'rairie region--heart of Ark^n;as' rice producing area. Rice is a hirsty crop. The fields have to e flooded during the growing icason. As th'e level of under- jrounri water Tails off, the more 11 ·osts to pump water lo the sur- ace. Most water used for* irriga- ion of rice comes from wells. Frlcke and Kazmann have been vorking on the recharge theory or years and have expounded it 30fore government agencies. They ontend their system eventually /ill restore ground water to de- irable levels ns well as cut the ost of irrigation and remove the [anger and hazard of a drought. Plan Outlined This is.' how their plan works: They would sink a well about 20 feet in diameter and 130 feet in depth. In the center would be a shaft with perforated distributor pipes al the bollom, arranged like spokes on' a wheel. The pipes would be forced into water bear- Ing sand and gravel and water forced down the shaft and through Ihe pipes into natural water-storage vaults. The Kazmann-Fricke idea re- zonlal'collection type of well. The surface water source for underground distribulion would coma from nearby streams by means of a canal. One recharge well'Is designed to feed water wells within a two-mile radius and thus eliminate the need for intricate canals connecting rice farms. The two engineers want Congress to f i n a n c e the first test pro)* ect. If it works here, they are cor · Indent t h a t the recharge well idea would be successful in other parts of the nation.
